re: Name your top 5 U.S. Cities to live in - AlwysATgr
I have lived by cities (BTR, RDU, MCO, MSY, HOU) but never in them and no desire to. In no particular order: Merritt Island, FL (and preferably south of Pineda Cswy) Lowcountry, SC Madisonville, LA Nearby Destin Along Kancamagus HW NH (summers only) Really surprised to see Boston on some...

re: If Hess were to consistently underperform as a starter, what would be his bullpen role? - AlwysATgr
Hess was up-n-down as a Friday starter last year. I was ok with that. I think it takes a certain mentality to be that and something to grow into. But I was disappointed with last Friday. Not what I expected and this is not last year. He's got to do better. I would give him 3-4 starts to get s...

re: Has there been a better LSU sports season than 2018-2019? - AlwysATgr
[quote]1986:  Football finished no. 5  Basketball: Final Four  Baseball: College World Series appearance  [/quote] As another poster pointed out this wasn't in a single "school year." IMO, this was our best big-3 year. But I don't think we finished at #5 in football after '86. That was ...

re: Rouses coming to Destin - AlwysATgr
IMO, a good Rouses is definitely better than a good Publix. I still wouldn't drive 23 miles though. What I would do is if 'I just happen to be going that way maybe' take a cooler along and stock up on some things....

re: O Will Always be Compared to Les, Saban, and Jimbo/Herman - AlwysATgr
[quote]And he’s by far the least competent coach from that list. Not even close.[/quote] Perhaps. Time will tell (and games and recruiting and rankings). Example: in year 2 of Les's tenure, we finished 3rd. We finished 6th in O's. Not bad. But still not as good as Les. O has his oppo...

re: O Will Always be Compared to Les, Saban, and Jimbo/Herman - AlwysATgr
[quote]Curious as to what sparked you to write this right now?[/quote] IMO, the O-apologists dismiss and downplay the comparisons. And for the most part, they are not favorable comparisons at this juncture. ...

re: Clip from Jesuit QB and LSU legacy Kyle Wickersham - AlwysATgr
[quote]Jeff Wickersham was a very underrated college QB.[/quote] Yep. '83 - lousy record but our O rocked. Had lost, I think, 9 starters on D from '82. '84 - should've had a win vs UF at the Swamp by Betanzos missed a short FG and we tied. '85 - led a last minute comeback and should've beat ...

O Will Always be Compared to Les, Saban, and Jimbo/Herman - AlwysATgr
Like it or not, that's simply going to be a fact of his tenure. Why? A) Les - that's who he succeeded and who was fired for (you can fill in the blank but in a word) underachievement. It was expected of him to win more than 8-9 games/yr. B) Saban - main competition in the SECW; pacesetter in...

[quote]we aren't chopped liver on either side of the ball for the upcoming season.[/quote] Could've said the same thing pre'18 and we looked like chopped liver vs Bama. Do you disagree? Since they out-recruited us on both sides of the ball again, why do you expect it to change in the future?...

[quote]C’mon, he’s said a lot of things post Bama. None of it has come to fruition. [/quote] I'm now convinced that Ed just blows smoke. He said things pre-Bama that was just lies. Until now, about 99% of my criticism has revolved around E as OC. But post-Bama he specifically hung his hat on ...

re: How soon is too soon to be concerned with DL recruiting under Orgeron? It's his 3rd class - AlwysATgr
[quote]You are creating fictitious events to support your catastrophic perspective. Its time to sit down and be quiet [/quote] No he's not. He's voicing a legitimate concern. If you're a DL guru at LSU our DL play should be great and you should be able to darn near cherry pick your DL. That is...

re: your take on these late signees ?? - AlwysATgr
There are a lot of factors to weigh in some cases. Big decision for 17-18 yr olds to make. There are coaching changes, family concerns (proximity), etc. Zero problems with recruits waiting until they're sure. That's what matters in the end....
